Hmm.... I think that part of the difference in pitch might be velar vs. uvular, but also, the lower-pitched click is partially labialized. The higher-pitched click also seems to be articulated with a laminal stop as opposed to an apical one. At least that's the way I pronounce them, as nearly as I can tell. -- languages of Azir------> ---<>--- hmiller (Herman Miller) "If all Printers were determin'd not to print any email password: thing till they were sure it would offend no body, \ "Subject: teamouse" / there would be very little printed." -Ben Franklin
